Just an ok trail compared to other trails in the area. Limited canyon trails and main trail was very muddy. Great bluff views of the river though.

Nice combination of several trails. Has several wet weather waterfalls and scenic alcoves.

Nice trail for a day hike. Very muddy and worn in places. The canyons were spectacular. It got more crowded and noisy as you get close to the main park area.

Beautiful snowy day so the trail was covered but packed well. Not a lot of hikers on a January Thursday morning. Recommend YakTrax during days like today. Scenery was pleasant. Trail was well kept. Everyone in the group seemed happy with the trail.
